copies are made and each ticket
written must be checked with the
city recorder or treasurer, who re
ceives a copy of each traffic ticket.
City Manager J. L. Franzen said
he had this problem in mind and
that a subsequent investigation
was planned.
An ordinance to change council
meetings from the first and third
Wednesdays of each month to the
second and fourth Mondays, ta
bled several meetings ago, was
re-introduced by Alderman How
ard Maple. - v
Other traffic problems and street
and light improvements were also

Nearly 40 residents signed a pe

Approves Improvements
Council approval was given im
provements for East Nob Hill
street, from Superior to Oxford;
Pine street, from Laurel to Myr
tle avenue; Jefferson street, from
Commercial to North 5th street;
ldtn street, from Market to Nor
way street. "
Petitioners had enough signers
to warrant improvement of Fred
erick street, from 20th tor 21st
street; Adams, from 23rd to 24th
street and Spruce street, bfrom
Cherry to Myrtle avenue.
Several street lights, asked in
petitions to the council, were al
ready slated for installation in the

Road System
To Cost State
$370 Million
It will cost approximately $370.- to complete and modern
ize 7,200 miles of -Oregon state
highways and 1,400 miles of coun
ty roads, State Highway Engineer
R. H. Baldock estimated Wednes
day. He Indicated that . from 20
to 30 years would be required
to complete the job.
For the next two years the
highway commission proposes to
spend $42,000,000 for construction
with some reduction in revenues.
At the end of 1945 the net worth
of state highways was $186,000,
000. Baldock estimated that' $40.-
000,000 would be required to con
struct 1,400 miles of county roads
which have been included In the
federal secondary system.
An additional $75,000,000 will
be required to build arterial
highways through cities, $15,000,
000 for improvement of rural sec
tions of the newly designated sys
tem of interstate highways and
$10,000,000 for development of
state parks.

Airport Plans
Threatened by
Impending Cut
Commerce Secretary A. Averell,
Harriman said today that the pro
posed $70,000,000 cut in appropriation-
for the civil aeronautics
administration would eliminate
one-half the larger airport pro
jects now proposed for 1948..
In addition, he told a press con
ference, there would be no gov
ernment funds for the operation
of airport traffic control towers
which are now operating at 148
"Unless the cities are prepared
to finance operation of these tow
ers by July 1, discontinuance
could mean the virtual paralysis
of commercial air transportation,"
Harriman said.
Harriman said the agency will
be forced to take these actions
on proposed airport projects sub
mitted to congress February. 28
if the committee's proposal is ap
proved by congress:
Oregon: Drop Denmark, Tilla
mook, Pendleton, Astoria, Eugene,
Newport, The Dalles, -North Bend.
Medford, Troutdale, Corvallis, and
reduce Portland by $57,000. '
Armenian Lays Hands on Head
Of Epileptic; Predicts Cure Soon
PALM SPRINGS, Calif., May 7-(P)-Avak Hagopian, 20-year-old
Armenian who says he heals by prayer, today laid his hands on
the head of Vaughn Arkalian and. predicted the 37-year-ol4 epileptic
would be well "within two weeks." (b
The meeting took place in the winter home of Kirkor Arak
elian,v 76, millionaire wine producer who brought Avak here from
Iran to heal his son Vaughn.
Vaughn, unshaven and shirt
less, sat beside Avak in the living
room of his fathers residence,
named "Dream of the Desert.
Vaughn's father, founder of a
vineyard empire which members
of his family estimate as worth
$25,000,000, was standing at the
time In a patio outside the room.
He burst into an Armenian song
and smiled broadly. "Vaughn, he
said, "although he suffered an at
tack this morning, already is feel
ing better than he has in months.
See, the boy is smiling."
There were no other immedi
ate apparent effects from Avak's
visit. '
Earlier Avak treated Narsesi-
an i wife, Zeadan, - whose right
side was made useless by a stroke
four years ago.
"God sent me to make you
well Avak told her.
A caravan of a score or more
cars bearing Armenians and Rus
sians, arrived at Palm Springs to
day but abided by Avak s wishes
to wait out the week before seek
ing his aid. In the cars were blind
persons and others suffering from
diseases they said they had been
told were incurable.
